Making Progress on LinkedIn, MySpace & Google+!

Over the past week I have been using my three new social networking sites a pretty good amount.  So far I have made the most progress on LinkedIn.  Since my last blog post, I have made so many more connections – I am now up to 56 connections and my profile page has dramatically improved.  I have all of my previous jobs listed and I have added details about each one.  This week I am going to write and add a full paragraph about my occupational interests and specialties, which I have not done yet.  So far my profile is “75 percent complete” because there are some sections that I did not get to yet.  My goal is to have at least 20 more connections by next week, and this site is truly great for networking.  It’s very interesting to read about other peoples interests and specialties and then compare that to where they have worked along with their other information.  Attached are two screenshots, one of the top half of my profile page and one of the bottom half.

 

I have been using Google+ a lot as well however the only problem that I’ve had so far is that Facebook keeps making upgrades that are copying the uniqueness of Google+.  Since Google+ is connected to Gmail a lot of people are signed up for it and I have 22 people in my friends circle so far.  Not that many users have made any real posts yet.  One of my friends actually posted “Giving up on Google+” as his latest post.  I have invited some of my family members to the site so I can put them in my “family circles” category, that way I’ll be able to see how the site works privacy wise with these new settings.  There is one thing that I really like about Google+, and that would be the chat settings.  There is a chat option that is easy to use  and its great!  Here are some photos of my profile, and of what the site looks like.

 

As for MySpace, I have began adding new friends to my profile.  Since theres not that many people my age who are active on the site I have began to follow celebrities and music groups that I am a fan of.  I am still waiting for people to accept my requests.  I have made one status post so far, and I started following some popular groups that MySpace suggested.  MySpace has been really great for finding new music and this is definitely the aspect of the site that I enjoy the most.  This week I am going to focus on finding more friends, and hopefully people are active on the site and will accept my requests so I can see what their profiles look like.
